for the annual united nations general assembly. his biggest challenge is navigating a palestinian demand for an immediate security council vote on statehood. the administration has vowed to veto the palestinian request and risk a backlash on the arab street. but it is trying to negotiate some compromise so that it doesn't come to that. that's tough enough. and now add in this in your face political challenge from the republican presidential front-runner, texas governor rick perry, who came to new york city to accuse president obama of fumbling middle east diplomacy and undermining israel in the process. >> and we are equally indignant of the obama administration and their middle east policy of appeasement that's encouraged such an ominous act of bad faith. simply put, we would not be here today at this very precipice of such a dangerous move if the obama policy in the middle east wasn't naive and arrogant, misguided and dangerous. >> and the governor didn't stop there. he called the obama foreign policy naive and said that it left iran's radical regime emboldened. >> to date, we have fum
anyway and it's like the whole week of the united nations general assembly is like a progressive dinner party without the progress. and they just go around and around. and i'm telling you, this is a boondoggle. you want to save money, make this meeting every other year because you really don't need it every year. the thing that is interesting about the orrin hatch piece is that they haven't had to do that before to threaten to cut off aid and vote for it in the house or senate because we never walked this far up to the line. the other development today was that abbas, the president of the palestinian authority, said he will not heed president obama's request to not call for the vote. and that is a different dynamic. we'll have to see how that shakes out. >> there was some poll that said four out of ten americans have no opinion on this matter. i'm kind of one of them. for americans, the conflict there is like construction on a freeway. you drive by, it's been going on for years, you never see any progress at all. >> that's what i'm saying. >> it's like it goes on forever. >> in other wo

another story -- 193 nations meeting today at the united nations general assembly in new york. but there is one -- one speaker, that's set to take the stage and is certain to spark a bit of controversy. with gadhafi gone perhaps the most controversial figure at this week's united nations general assembly meeting is now iran's president, mahmoud ahmadinejad. he's set to take stage at the u.n., a platform he's used before to spark both outrage and fear. in 2006, he famously denied the holocaust. at colombia university in 2007, he claimed there were in gays in iran. in 2009 he denied the holocaust again causing many u.n. delegates to walk out. and last year, ahmadinejad implied 9/11 could have been an inside job by the united states. but beyond ahmadinejad's words, iran's actions matter to the u.s. because iran proves itself, time and time again, to be a dang dangerous wild card in a volatile region. just in the past year, iran resisted the arab spring, launching attacks on protesters. it was reminiscent of the violent response to iran's green revolution in 2009 when iranians cam
